    In this article, I'll explain how to disable push notifications. There are more and more web pages that want to grab your attention and act like applications, and the first step is usually to ask for your permission to send you notifications and then have you visit their web page.


    At any time you will be able to decide whether to give them permission, but what if you change your mind or just don't want anyone else to ask your permission? For this reason, today we will explain how to delete Chrome notifications, both through the desktop version of the browser and in the one designed for mobile devices.



    We will use the Windows and Android versions step by step, but these are some steps that you will be able to perform in other operating systems as well. Furthermore, we chose Chrome because it is the most used browser on both types of devices.

    How to disable push notifications on Firefox

    Starting with Firefox 72, scheduled for next year, Firefox will require user interaction on all notification permission requests, which means “before a site can request notification permission, the user will have to touch, click or press a key ”.


    Until then, go to the top right of Firefox, select the hamburger icon ()> Options> Privacy and security, then scroll down to the Permissions section. Here you can give websites permission to access your computer's location data and peripherals, as well as send notifications and auto-play videos.

    You can immediately click the checkbox under Notifications to pause all notifications until Firefox restarts, giving you some time to be free from invasive messages. Firefox also blocks pop-ups and warns of unauthorized add-ons by default. If you want to allow individual websites in one of these categories, select the Settings or Exceptions button.

    A menu will display a list of websites previously blocked or allowed directly by notification messages. Check the box at the bottom of the menu to block all new future notification requests. If there are items in the list that you want to change, use the drop-down menu to toggle between Blocked and Allowed, or you can remove them entirely from the list.

    How to disable web notifications on Safari

    On Safari, go to the macOS main menu and select Safari> Preferences> Websites> Notifications to view all websites that you have authorized or denied notification permissions. Use the drop-down menu for each entry to change permissions or highlight a website and click Remove to delete it entirely.

    You can also uncheck the box next to Allow websites to ask for permission if you want to stop pop-up notifications entirely.

    You can also manage notifications at the operating system level. Go up System Preferences> Notifications> Safari and you can determine how the web browser forwards notifications to you or if it will at all. Set the alert style to None and uncheck the boxes for the notification settings you want to disable.

    It should be noted that this method also works with Chrome, Firefox, and any other third-party browsers you use on Mac.
